    Negative front camber is not a bad thing necessarily

    Since the Godspeed website sucks and I can't see it on the Amazon listing, what kind of lowering does the Godspeed give? It looks as if you have quite a lot of threads left.. How much is your car down from stock?

    Also lower mounts look like they are just screwed on the threads on the front? If so that basically means you can both adjust the lower mount upwards (to keep the fronts stiff) or lower the car by turning the springs down making the fronts softer (understood, you can compensate that a little by stiffening the dampening). Which is cool.

    Pretty good. I've driven on mountains back roads that were completely terrible. The ride isn't harsh, better setting do help like 1 inch lower with medium stiffness.

    I have a lot road work going on with annoying bumps, so I put made the ride softer. A little bouncy on main roads with many bumps or just from being uneven.... But not too bad overall.

    I just ordered these over the weekend and will have them on Wednesday. I took my car to New Jersey last week and after that long drive it made me realize how bad the suspension has gotten over the 2 years since I installed the springs. The rear shocks are so bad right now with the rear drivers side being the worst so it hits bumps unevenly and it is extremely annoying. I am looking forward to getting these and installing them over the weekend. I was actually leaning towards trading the car in for a Ford Fiesta ST or a Fiat 500 Abarth and I was really close to doing it but decided to just wait a few more years because what I will really need at that time is a truck, so this will have to do until then. It is still a nice little car in most respects. It is extremely reliable, cheap to maintain, good on gas when not being flogged and so on, but I need to get this suspension right so I can actually enjoy the car a bit for the next few years. Once the coilovers are installed, dialed in, and driven on a bit, I will post my thoughts about them.
